Cala Bona and Cala Millor are busy, built-up areas which appeal to many visitors, but not everyone. Because of this unavoidable fact, my partner and I decided to rent a car from SIXT; despite deciding on a well known hire company, fully-comprehensive insurance with no excess and booking over the telephone, we were still apprehensive when we walked through the office's doors. Would they have our booking on the system? Would they try to up-sell us on the additional extras?
We had nothing to fear.
A waiting time of 30 minutes was justified by SIXT's popularity and within no time at all our documents were being processed and we were being guided through the contract (including highlighting all existing scratches and scrapes). It should be highlighted here that SIXT kindly upgraded our car from an automatic VW Polo (more than sufficient) to an automatic BMW at no extra charge and without request: it was, they reasoned, to thank us for our patience.
After paying the £300 deposit + the price of rental we were on our way to exploring the wonders of 'off the beaten track' Mallorca: from hidden coves overlooked by ancient towers to prime snorkel spots and mystical caves. It truly was a wonderful trip, made special by SIXT.
I would also like to highlight Monique, an asset to the SIXT team who made the task of car rental a rewarding and painless one.
We will certainly be seeking SIXT out again in the future!
